Improving habits

Narsimpalli student Kalyan and a villager discuss how habits affect health

Many villagers in Narsimpalli work as weavers and stone cutters. The work is hard on their bodies and they sometimes indulge in drinking alcohol or smoking and chewing tobacco to forget their pains.
Narsimpalli 7th and 8th class students went street to street to discuss the health problems such bad habits can cause. Carrying diagrams of internal organs, students educated villagers about how drinking or chewing gutkhas, jardas and pan masalasthe can lead to cancers and lung disease.
The project was part of the school’s Social Awareness Program.
